Director wants Beyoncé to play voice of Nala in ‘Lion King’ remake

Director Jon Favreau is getting ready for the live-action remake of the Disney classic The Lion King, and his top pick to voice the character of Nala is none other than Beyoncé.

According to Variety, insiders insist that the Lemonade singer has not yet made a decision but that the studio is willing to accommodate the fact that Beyonce is pregnant with twins. Since this is a voice acting role, it is expected to be less stressful and easier for the star to do.

This would be Beyoncé’s first film role since she was a voice actor in the animated film Epic.
